Halls of Residence – City Village, Coventry

NatMatSci is not just an educational establishment – it is a home for our students. Our curriculum is demanding, so it is important for the students to have a comfortable environment to relax in after lessons. We offer a modern take on the traditional British boarding school experience: state-of-the-art boarding facilities in an urban setting, furnished to a high standard with a contemporary feel.

Boarding students live together in contemporary accommodation in the heart of Coventry City Centre. The College has exclusive use of a block in the Residence,  offering students aged 16+ their first taste of independent living with the security of our on-site Boarding Team 24-hours a day, 7 days a week.

LUXURY STUDY BEDROOMS

Each student has their own en-suite study bedroom with a double bed, desk, wardrobe, under-bed storage and WIFI. Bed linen, duvet, pillow, and towels are provided for students at the start of the year. The rooms provide a calm and comfortable space for students to study and live independently, within a family-style environment.

There are also a small number of studio rooms available, which are larger and include a small kitchenette with microwave, toaster, kettle, and fridge as well as a flat-screen TV. These rooms are allocated by ballot to continuing students at the end of their first year at the College. Studio rooms are generally not available to new students.

kitchens and Communal Areas

Each floor has 2 large open-plan kitchen and living rooms, with ample space for relaxing, socialising and eating together. The kitchens are fully equipped and have dining space, as well as comfortable seating and televisions. Meals are served in the kitchens each evening, with both students and the Boarding Team dining together. Students are welcome to use the kitchens to prepare additional meals and snacks outside of mealtimes.
